Don't think twice
So the board did take some time to get used to, changing from a typical longboard, but it was nothing a few hours couldn't solve. I will say that at first I was super disappointed with the bearings, but they got a lot better as they got broken in. It's a stellar board. It's way fun to ride and so far I have no complaints about the material. Just let the bearings get broken in and it's a killer deal for cruising.
